Almost home: Senate Unanimously Passes Accessibility Bill
The Twenty First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act is one step closer to becoming the law of the land. Before adjourning for summer recess on August 5, 2010, the United States Senate passed S. 3304 by unanimous consent . Advocates expect the bill to be on President Obama’s desk for signature soon. The Law Office of Lainey Feingold congratulates all the advocates in the Coalition of Advocates for Accessible Technology (COAT) who made this historic bill a reality.
